Lunar Exploration Summer Intern Program hosted by The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI)
The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is hosting a special lunar exploration summer intern program to evaluate possible landing sites for robotic and human exploration missions. The LPI invites applications from graduate students in geology, planetary science, and related programs. The program is also open to undergraduate students in geology, astronomy, chemistry, and physics with at least 50 semester hours of credit so that they, too, can participate in lunar exploration activities. The goal of this program is to integrate NASA's lunar science priorities with the exploration components of the new Constellation program. This will be a unique team activity that should foster extensive discussions among students and senior science team members.
The 10-week program runs from June 1, 2010, through August 9, 2010. Selected interns will receive a $5000.00 stipend and a $1000.00 travel expense reimbursement for U.S. citizens or $1500.00 for foreign nationals.
Please pass this information on to any students who might be interested.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 22, 2010
